Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class) is close to getting an offer to star as Katniss in Lionsgate’s Hunger Games, Lionsgate’s bet on the next Twilight-sized young-adult franchise that channels a bit of Battle Royale.
Gary Ross is set to direct from a script by Billy Ray and Suzannes Collins. Lionsgate hopes to have it in theaters by March 23, 2012.
It’s another gritty role for the actress, who was just nominated for a best-actress Oscar for her turn as a strong-willed teen in the grim indie thriller Winter’s Bone.
Hunger Games, based on the novel by Collins, is set in a dystopian future where a young woman joins a survival contest to save her community. Tome is the first in a trilogy that’s garnered comparisons to the Twilight series.
Lost. For. Words.
